Every year we have a contest to find "La Casa Mas Bonita" (The Most Beautiful House). It is a fun contest that motivates families to take care of and improve their home. During this contest we choose the best-kept house and the families get a prize.

The prizes are:

A food basket 
Paint buckets 
Water filters

June Newsletter 2017


Last month we were delighted to welcome back Simone Kenny from Australia. Simone has been a serial organiser of volunteer groups for ten years. This time she came with a great group of friends that all donated to, and joined in to help us build two, 3 room houses in San Felipe close to Antigua.  It was always going to be a challenge to get both houses completed in the six days they were here, but these Aussie muckers made it look easy! We are also delighted then that Simone will be coming again in January with a huge group of 35 students from Eltham College in Melbourne. They will continue working in the remote community of Hacienda Vieja that her previous group from Eltham started last year. We can't wait for that! Thank you Simone, and thank you to all your amazing volunteers!
